I am a New York State Licensed Massage Therapist and California Certified Acupressure Practitioner. After becoming an acupressure practioner in 2005, I began a San Francisco-based private practice. Upon returning to New York I entered into a two year intensive education program with the goal of expanding my own style and knowledge base and obtaining my New York massage license. I graduated from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in 2009, and have been practicing privately in New York City since that time. I became a certified pregnancy and birth doula through Ancient Song Doula Services in January 2021.
I believe in providing personalized care that is specifically catered to the needs, physical capabilities, and injury issues of each client. I combine circulatory, deep tissue, myofasical, and eastern massage techniques into my own unique style that can be customized for various preferences of pressure and modalities. I also provide Shiatsu, Pre-Natal, Reflexology, and Tui Na massage. Keeping your body healthy with regular massage sessions is a major element of both preventative care and recovery. Because I am devoted to caring for my clients, I will always refer you to other medical and bodywork practitioners whenever I think it is necessary or beneficial and I am always available for questions from my clients both during and outside of scheduled appointments.
Born and raised in Baltimore, MD, I attended Columbia University, graduating with a degree in Dance and African American Studies. As a dancer and choreographer, I have performed in a wide variety of productions and with numerous talented artists, including choreographer/director Martha Clarke, filmmaker John Turturro, luciana achugar, Juliana May, Antonio Ramos, and RoseAnne Spradlin.
